If your family is interested in a gluten-free diet, the options are more plentiful than you might initially think. Whereas most soy sauce isn't usually safe for a gluten-free diet, some producers have managed to make a suitable sauce. San-J Teriyaki Sauce is one that is safe and can be used in a number of Asian dishes. Here's one that you and the kids can make together. Just steam some rice, slice some vegetables, fire up the wok, and you have a delicious, healthful dinner. Find more recipes at www.san-j.com.

Chicken teriyaki stir-fry
2 tablespoon sesame oil, divided
4 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into 1/2 inch strips
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 medium zucchini, halved and sliced into 1/2 inch strips
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into 1/2 inch strips
1 cup small broccoli florets
11/2 cups cabbage, thinly sliced
3/4 cup San-J Teriyaki Sauce (or your favorite teriyaki sauce)
1/4 cup fresh green onions, thinly sliced
6 cups steamed white rice
1. In a large saute pan or wok, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and saute for 3-5 minutes until no longer pink. Remove the chicken and keep warm on a plate.
2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in the wok. Add the vegetables and saute for 3 minutes over medium-high heat. Add the chicken back into the pan with the teriyaki sauce and cook for 5 more minutes until the vegetables are tender and the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat.
3. Garnish with green onions and serve over white rice.
